prevention practices. it was a summer of promise for karen christiansen and ken jones. after ten years of marriage, they were expecting their first child. ken was teaching when he got the call... ken jones: it was a person from the y, and when they first started talking about karen, it was very strange because i thought it was going to have something to do with the pregnancy, and then when they said it was a stroke, it took a few minutes for it to kind of sink in. i went to the class, and that's all i remember. i know now that the teacher, she saw that i wasn't acting as normal or whatever that the other women were. the source of the problem was occurring inside karen's brain, the body's control center. dr. saver: the brain is an incredibly complex organ. it's the seat of the personality and thinking in our humanity. it has millions, or perhaps billions of nerve cells, and billions upon billions of connections between these nerve cells. it is organized in a very regular pattern from individual to individual. it is fed by a number of blood vessels that bring nutrients to different areas

. the other scene of excitement in chicago. abc's karen travers is there at obama headquarters. hi, karen. >> reporter: here in chicago, the mood has been electric. the crowd erupted into thunderous applause when the networks projected that the president had won ohio and thus had been re-elected. the president didn't just win ohio he held his midwestern fire wall, wisconsin and iowa. we have been paying so much attention to ohio over the last couple month. a critical state for their strategy. he won virginia, colorado, he won nevada. this has turned into a very big night for president obama. you had the sense from campaign aide early on as the polls started closing that they new things were trend in their direction and they were feeling confident. the president wrote two different speeches for tonight. a victory speech. and a concession speech. he was prepared for any scenario. tonight here in this room, before, newly 20,000, very excited supporters, he gets to deliver that victory speech. >> we are an american family and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one people.

political analyst, jonathan alter of bloomberg view, and msnbc political analyst and former dnc, karen finney, hopefully joining us shortly. john, i go to you first. in terms of sandy being an inflection point, game changer, if you will, a term we do not toss around lightly, are we -- is it -- is it a game changer? can you prognosticate that far? do you think the president is stronger coming out of the sandy response as a candidate? >> look, there's no question that if you think about this storm and what it's done to the media environment over the course of the week, it's blackout coverage. so the president's been in that coverage. and to some extent, much driven by the storm but he's -- he's there, he's the president on screen. governor romney has been nowhere. he's just -- it's not his fault. he's just not part of this conversation. he doesn't have anything to say about it. he doesn't have a role to play. so if you're a challenger, running a presidential campaign, in the last week to essentially be blocked from the airwaves for five straight days it's a big problem. forget whether he

panel. msnbc political analyst karen finney is a former communications director of the democratic national committee and professor james peterson is director of african studies at lehigh university. welcome to you both. professor, we just saw mike huckabee there, a former presidential candidate, telling jon stewart that his party does a pathetic job communicating to nonwhite voters. but is it really just communication or was it their apparent belief that nonwhites want free stuff and food stamps that caused the real problems? >> it is. you're right. so what they do is they effectively communicate their disdain for the 47% for women, for people of color, for poor folk, and so i think they are being very, very effective in their communication. it's just what are they communicating through all the racialized discourses we have chronicled on your show, for all the ways in which they dismiss poverty, dismiss ideas about the ways in which our society has to work with those folk who need support at certain times in their life. they refer to them as 47% or the takers or the moochers or wh

political analyst karen finney. karen, we just heard senator john mccain a moment ago in "top lines" saying, okay, from now on we republicans should just leave the issue of abortion alone. does he mean that republicans should belatedly accept the supreme court ruling or is he saying that they simply shouldn't discuss the issue in public? >> exactly. has nothing to do with a change of heart. it has to do with a change of talking points. clearly you could see in all of those top lines that a new sheet of talking points were issued to the gop this weekend. but don't let that fool you to make you think the policies have actually changed. i think they're smart enough to say, hey, if we just don't talk about it, maybe it will be okay. i think we're going to get the test test of it with the violence against women act reauthorization. >> ab na marie there was a supplementary question to senator mccain's enigmatic pronouncement. >> when you say leave the issue alone, you would say freedom of choice? >> i would allow people to have those opinions and respect those opinions. i'm proud of my pro-life p

. >> we agree on that. >> one thing susan brought up, headline politics. msnbc analyst karen finney wrote a piece for "the hill" talking about the potential nomination and the last part is what caught my eye saying the gop's continued focus on attacking the ambassador's use of talking points also appears to be personal. some have suggested the real issue could be a belief that ambassador susan rice has simply been promoted high enough. is susan rice becoming a scapegoat in all of this? >> oh, she's obviously becoming a scapegoat, thomas. susan and i agree, it shouldn't be about these talking points. it should be about her record. she has a long record in international work, first with the clinton administration and now has served very well this administration. and so the idea that they're acting like she is some kind of secretary who -- some kind of junior person who had no business being out there, they're also acting like, quite honestly, she is incompetent and that she, her talking points weren't very bright which rings some bells for many women and people of color that there's some wa
